Colours & Emotion For August 2016

Colours and Emotions
  1. Do individual colours actually affect our emotions? Different studies come up with different results but here is one that says yes and no both. Angela Wright, Colour Psychologist, believed that it wasn't one individual colour but rather a combination of colours that made us react a certain way. Example, Grey skies on a sunny day won't make us feel too gloomy because we'll also have bright flowers to look at, while on an already dull day with a white sky, the grey clouds will just stand out further and make us feel worse.

  2. For most of us, summers are when all the white clothes are brought out. But for widows in Hinduism, white is the only colour they can wear. This can have two reasons, One being that since white is the purest colour, it symbolizes the life a widow should lead henceforth and lends her strength to overcome all her future struggles while the second one says that white is chosen as it represents old age, asceticism, asexuality and infertility- all of which is applied to widowhood in Hinduism also. The latter explanation is more widely accepted than the former in popular culture.

You may have often seen people wearing really tight, dark clothes with splashes of colour or just having vividly coloured hair/piercings in contrast. Being 'Emo' is a lifestyle choice and with it comes its own fashion rules. So why do Emo kids wear mostly black? This is because they focus a lot on the sad, negative aspects of life which black represents, and the colours they wear stands for their love of music, poetry, books and other forms of art. The Emo subculture believes in expressing emotions and the exploration of it.

  1. 'Apache Tear' is an oddly-shaped gem with a fascinating legend regarding its origin. A party of Apache Indians was ambushed by an enemy tribe wherein two-thirds of the Apache warriors were killed. The rest of the Apache warriors chose to die by leaping over a cliff's edge. The apache women of those who had died gathered and mourned at the base of the cliff. Their sadness was so great that the Great Spirit is believed to have encased their tears into this gem. It is often used to calm muscle spasms, detoxify the body and absorb vitamins.

  2. Chrysocolla is a copper stone whose name comes from the Greek word 'chrysos' meaning gold and 'kolla' meaning glue, which together means 'Gold Glue'. It is known as the stone of communication and its very essence is dedicated to teaching, expression and empowerment. Mistaken for turquoise due to its blue-green colour, this stone encourages strengthening of character and compassion. In ancient Egypt, it was known as the 'wise stone' and lore has it that this stone was carried around by Cleopatra everywhere as it had power to make violent people sensitive and tolerant. This lovely stone is also believed to attract love.

  1. Ever wondered why the predators found in the Savanna region are a golden brown colour? Lions, Leopards and Cheetahs, all found in the grasslands of the Savanna have a tawny fur coat which helps to camouflage them amidst the golden grass in that area. In fact, because cubs lack the ability to protect themselves, their coat is lightly spotted to help them hide better between the long strands of grass. This makes it tougher for their prey to spot them and run, thus giving these predators an added advantage!

  2. There are quite a few different colours of rabbits like black, brown, white; but did you know that rabbits actually change colour every time they moult? Moulting refers to the process of an animal shedding old feathers, skin, or fur. Once a rabbit grows into a full size adult, one can notice the change in the fur coat's colour every time they moult! While light moulting occurs every few months, heavy moulting is observed at the end of winter and summer season.
